Bioindividual Nutrition Institute

Advanced clinical training in the science and application of customizing therapeutic diets and nutrition to the unique bioindividual needs of individuals. Led by Julie Matthews

Individuals have specific dietary needs based on their unique biochemistry, health history, and food reactions. Customizing dietary strategy is necessary, though requires advanced knowledge, experience, and time. Our Professional Program provides the tools and strategies you need for success. Our nutrition course is like no other. Instead of teaching one dietary approach – we provide you the necessary tools to customize your nutrition approach for maximum benefit. Led by a practicing nutrition consultant, this course also includes business and practice tools based on over a decade of clinical experience. And we are the only nutrition training to also recommends technology tools to enhance your practice. BioIndividual Nutrition is the science and clinical application of diet and nutrition intervention that is customized to the unique needs of an individual. Most chronic health conditions have underlying imbalances in immune, digestive, cellular and detoxification function. Factors that can make some people very sensitive to foods and chemicals – even seemingly healthy foods can cause irritability, hyperactivity, inattentiveness, and pain; and can exacerbate oxidative stress and inflammation and deplete underlying biochemical pathways. As a healthcare or nutrition professional, it is crucial to understand the role of food and nutrient deficiencies in your approach. If food reactions and dietary issues are not addressed, your overall healing approach may be ineffective. Our course will help you support your clients/patients by individualizing food and nutrition recommendation based on their unique needs. There is great need for evidenced based diet and nutrition guidance that considers multiple individual variables. Having science and technology working for your helps improve patient outcomes and satisfaction. Our colleagues have been patiently awaiting the launch of Julie Matthews first comprehensive training for clinicians. Julie has educated physicians and professionals at trainings for ARI/DAN!, IMMH, MAPS, and the MINDD Forum in Australia, as there is great need for a body of professionals with advanced understanding and capability for nourishing hope in each person. Upon completion, Certified BioIndividual Nutrition PractitionersTM become part of a supportive network of professionals and researchers committed to improving healthcare through this advanced approach. You’ll be listed on our website, along with other details about your practice.

Mission: Our mission is to establish the legitimacy of individualized diet and nutrition protocols for the prevention and healing of all chronic health conditions.

The Truth About Raw Foods and Enzymes » Houston Enzymes

"Plant fruits contain enzymes in order that their seeds can be dispersed or sprout, using the remains of the fruit as cover or fuel for sprouting. Digestion, on the other hand, must be accomplished in a matter of hours, not days or weeks." Dr. Houston's Blog Keyword The Truth About Raw Foods and Enzymes Tagged raw food, diet, enzymes, digestion; Posted January 19, 2018 by Dr. Devin Houston Once in a while I get an email admonishing me for not emphasizing raw foods as a source of digestive enzymes.

7 Adaptogenic Herbs to Heal Adrenals Naturally - Dr. Jolene Brighten

"You can’t use adaptogenic herbs and think they’ll help you push through those all nighters or increased work load. Sure they’ll help. But if you’re not dialing back your stress, then these herbs aren’t about to push you to work harder.

It is ok to use adaptogenic herbs during times of stress. In fact, they can be tremendously helpful. But if there is no end in sight to that stress then the priority should be stress reduction first then supplementation."

Dr. Jolene Brighten shares some great insight on herbal adaptogens! “Every little stressor feels like the end for me! I’m screaming at my kids, my husband, and gritting my teeth with co-workers for at least the last 6 months,” Alice shared in her first visit. She was 10 months postpartum with her first baby and holding down a fulltime job on top of a household...

The great nutrient collapse

Interesting piece on nutrient depletion in our food based on atmosphere changes.

"Earlier this summer, a group of researchers published the first studies attempting to estimate what these shifts could mean for the global population. Plants are a crucial source of protein for people in the developing world, and by 2050, they estimate, 150 million people could be put at risk of protein deficiency, particularly in countries like India and Bangladesh. Researchers found a loss of zinc, which is particularly essential for maternal and infant health, could put 138 million people at risk. They also estimated that more than 1 billion mothers and 354 million children live in countries where dietary iron is projected to drop significantly, which could exacerbate the already widespread public health problem of anemia." The atmosphere is literally changing the food we eat, for the worse. And almost nobody is paying attention.

Health risks linked to electromagnetic field exposure

A study of real-world exposure to non-ionizing radiation from magnetic fields in pregnant women found a significantly higher rate of miscarriage, providing new evidence regarding their potential health risks.

A grain-free, paleo, specific carb, or GAPS are commonly touted as ways to address digestive conditions. However, many of these diet protocols are very specific and include high amounts of foods that some some people do not tolerate. It’s one of the biggest mistakes I see people come to me for in my nutrition practice!

"The person is not just their genes-but rather a combination of genes and the environment. The environment is more than the air I breath, the food I eat, or the chemicals I'm exposed to. It's also my internal environment. The unique microbes that inhabit my body"

#genetics #biohacking

Recently, I was asked about my thoughts on genetic online testing (23andMe) and how people should be utilizing this new ability to access their genetics. This short video blog is my response to the question. #genetics #biohacking

"An exciting study indicates that supplementation with methyl B12 (the coenzyme or active form of vitamin B12 which is also known as methylcobalamin) could lead to an overall amelioration of autism symptoms by improving DNA methylation. You see, not all genes are active at all times: it is the role of DNA methylation, an epigenetic mechanism, to turn a cell’s genes on and off at the appropriate time – this process appears to be impaired in many individuals with autism."

Not every practitioner realizes that these seemingly healthy changes and focus on nutrient dense foods can actually cause or exacerbate underlying biochemical issues. For example, some people cannot handle salicylates, oxylates, or FODMAPS. A food that is healthy for one person, is not healthy for another.

Detailed analysis of autism-associated genes finds involvement in key pathways and processes

First autism study of its kind by Drs. Martha Herbert and Ya Wen. It's an exciting day for those of us in the autism field! This is an exciting and groundbreaking study. “Our pathway network analysis is the first bioinformatics study in autism to connect the dots of brain and body – of autism and accompanying medical conditions, of autism and vulnerability to environmental stress – in one investigation,” says Ya Wen, PhD A group of Massachusetts General Hospital investigators has identified key underlying biological processes that involve some of the hundreds of genes known to contribute to the risk of autism spectrum disorders.

Could new class of fungicides play a role in autism, neurodegenerative diseases?

Could new class of fungicides play a role in autism, Alzheimer's disease, Huntington's disease, and other neurodegenerative diseases? A class of commonly used fungicides has been found that produce gene expression changes similar to those in people with autism and neurodegenerative conditions, including Alzheimer's disease and Huntington's disease.

Avoiding Sun as Dangerous as Smoking

New research shows "women who seek out the sun were generally at lower risk for cardiovascular disease (CVD) and noncancer/non-CVD diseases such as diabetes, multiple sclerosis, and pulmonary diseases, than those who avoided sun exposure." Researchers find that over 20 years, women with greater sun exposure live longer and have lower risk for cardiovascular disease and noncancer/non-CVD diseases than sun avoiders.

Gluten- and casein-free diet makes a meal of autism science

Another story trying to debunk diets for autism. Please, if diet has helped you or your clients, consider posting your comments on the website. There are many naysayers out there and it hurts children when parents are discouraged from trying a special diet. In some cases, clinicians recommend special diets; in others, they're instigated by parents eager to find anything that may help their child.
